I have a soft spot in my heart for pansies and violas.
Their petiteness, their ubiquity, their bright eyes...
I imagine a girl named Pansy would be quite prim, but with a little mischievous je ne sais quoi. And, you know, wear her hair hair like a raven-haired version of Jean Seberg in Breathless and wear a blouse covered in tiny polka dots.
I hope her primness pleases others as much as it does me. Thanks very much for all your extremely kind and thoughtful notes re: the new paintings, and I hope your week is off to a nice start!
